Unfolding in a series of mythic vignettes, this late work by Akira Kurosawa brings eight of the beloved director's own nighttime visions, informed by tales from Japanese folklore, to cinematic life. As a visually sumptuous journey through the master's imagination, tales of childlike wonder give way to apocalyptic apparitions: a young boy stumbles on a fox wedding in a forest; a soldier confronts the ghosts of the war dead; a power plant meltdown smothers a seaside landscape in radioactive fumes. Interspersed with reflections on the redemptive power of creation, including a richly textured tribute to Vincent van Gogh, the film is both a showcase for its maker's artistry at its most unbridled and a deeply personal lament for a world at the mercy of human ignorance.

Legendary film director, Akira Kurosawa, released "Dreams" in 1990 as his 28th masterpiece. Visually stunning, the film is a set of eight vignettes depicting the effects of human beings on nature. It is just as relevant today as it was at its release. Recommended by Michele

Moving, magical dream episodes include the forbidden sight of fox spirits' wedding; apocalyptic destruction; and a vibrant, musical dancing procession celebrating life. This is a gorgeous, deep film from a great filmmaker, enriched by the perspective of age.
